Smell of piss tranfer into fruits?
    #1580216 - 05/27/03 02:20 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Do the mushrooms soak up the piss of the mycelium? There are suspicious spots of yellowish orange on my friends cake and they don't smell normal but the spots haven't spread and aren't in the contam fact so he thinks it's just piss. He didn't dunk the cakes so he thinks that the piss just dried up and stunk up the cakes throughout the first flush. He picked a mushroom off of the cake and it smelled just like the cake did, rather pissy. Is this normal or contam?

You should have dunk the cakes.
If mycelium piss is too much and then it dries over the mycelium it gets sticky and slimy and will probably contaminate.
Toss the infected cakes and mushrooms.

How do I know when the mycelium piss has become too much? What are the signs that it has turned to contams?

A yellowish slime begins to acumulate and it starts to smell just like urine, it's nasty.
Btw, if what you see is really dried up and yellow, then that's due to lack of humidity, in this case dunking the cakes and rising your terrarium Rh will be a good idea.

I think your problem is simply bacteria due to insufficient sterilization.

How and how long did you sterilize the cakes?

15 psi for 45 minutes. Wouldn't bacteria make itself visible a little bit earlier in the process? I think it was the mycelium plotting its own demise.
